Don Pedros in Sayulita Mexico

Don Pedro's Restaurant & Bar

Highlights
Amazing view
Salsa night every Monday
A Sayulita Must

Don Pedro's Restaurant & Bar in Sayulita Mexico was founded in 1994. It sits on the beach under a giant thatched palapa surrounded by panoramic views of ocean and jungle, and offers expertly prepared Mediterranean-style cuisine with a Mexican influence. The restaurant is nestled on Sayulita's golden beach and guests delight in an unforgettable dining experience while surfers ride gentle waves in full view. There is open air, covered seating inside, plus the beach patio and bar, where the view is even better and the dining more enjoyable with your toes in the sand. Be sure to check out Salsa Night, every Monday at 8:00 PM during the season (Oct - June). Come at 7:00 PM for salsa lessons. Thursdays bring Gypsy Flamenco with Latcho and Andrea at 7:00 PM. Don Pedro's has been voted "Best Restaurant" in Sayulita for three years running in the Voter's Choice Best of Sayulita Awards.

The Story of Don Pedro's

In 1992, two cousins, Damien and Nicholas, set off from Los Angeles on a surf and culinary adventure. Making their way south, they stumbled upon a diamond-in-the-rough called Sayulita. With one phone line in town at the Paleteria and hardly any other services, Sayulita was a dusty fishing village that time seemed to have forgotten. Tucked into a jungle-clad bay with a consistent rivermouth break, Sayulita's serene natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the locals impressed the two travelers, so much that they decided to stay. And thus a dream began to crystallize - to build a world-class restaurant on the beach of this little paradise. Like many passionate dreamers, they were laughed at, told it would never work. But true to the old adage "if you build it, they will come", they did... and the people came. Over fifteen years later, they keep coming back.

Giving Back

From the onset of their experience in Sayulita, Damien and Nicholas have always believed in improving the quality of life for the locals who call this place home. They financed the restoration of the malecon and fortification of the beach area. They have repeatedly contributed to the development of the growing town's sewer system and financed upgrades to the local power grid. Most importantly, Don Pedro's has employed at least one member of every founding family of the village. Don Pedro's continues to be the largest employer in Sayulita.

Nicholas Parrillo
Executive Chef /Co-owner

Chef Parrillo received formal training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and matriculated at the Culinary Institute of America. He further honed his skills in fine establishments such as Rex IL Ristorante of Los Angeles, Prego's of Beverly Hills, Rebecca's of Venice Beach and I Cugini of Santa Monica. For Chef Parrillo, Don Pedro's is a dream come true - a culinary laboratory where the freshest local ingredients and Mexican flavors meet classical Mediterranean and cutting-edge Californian techniques to create a distinctly unique dining experience. Chef Parrillo, his wife and two children live on a ranch just outside Sayulita where he grows many of his special organic ingredients.

Damien Porter
Executive Director/Co-owner

Upon graduating UC Berkeley in 1992, Damien set off on a journey to ride the ultimate wave. What started as an "Endless Summer" surf safari turned into a visionary enterprise in a foreign land. Throughout his extensive global travels, Damien was always drawn to the local cultures that embraced him. In Sayulita, the genuine hospitality of the village convinced him of the tremendous potential for a world-class gourmet experience just steps away from the surf. Damien lives in Sayulita where he oversees several businesses and still surfs any chance he gets. Damien, Nicholas and the Don Pedro's family welcome you to enjoy this little paradise on earth.

Great Spot
We celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary here with our kids last week, and had a great experience. It was agreed that my dinner of the short ribs was the best of the table (OUTSTANDING!), and although neither family member who ordered the Mahi-Mahi cared for their meal (they said it was flavorless, thin, under-portioned and overcooked), the appetizers, service, drinks and the rest of the meals were excellent.

Great place!
We dropped off our fresh mahi mahi catch here after fishing in the morning and came back to dinner that night and they cooked it for us. It was super - grilled with mashed potatoes and veggies. Sounds simple but it was the best mashed potatoes and veggies! The other highlight was the cheese pizza. Crazy I know but my kids LOVED it so much we got one to go another day. My husband and I had a couple pieces too. Great pizza - so flavorful for cheese pizza. It's on the water so that's nice. Sorry we don't have many menu options to review - but it was great - great view and great service. Try it!

Great spot, quick service!
On a recent visit to Puerto Vallarta we took a day to go to Sayulita and had a delicious lunch at Don Pedro’s. We had crispy, tasty, shrimp tacos with guacamole and chips. What a fabulous lunch overlooking the beach with of course icy mango margaritas which hit the spot in the summer heat!

Best restaurant in sayulita!
We celebrated by bday dinner here. I’m a vegetarian and can find it difficult to find food in other countries let alone options. I had plenty things to choose from and all 7 of the group had nothing but positive things to say. I would definitely return here.

Ambience!
This place is all about the atmosphere and location. Right on the beach. Amazing open air ocean views and live music. Salsa night was fun - but the dance floor gets super busy with people who really know how to salsa. It didn't stop us from pretending we knew what we were doing as we danced ourselves out of the restaurant and left the others doing some kind of organized Macarena kind of Salsa dance. Fun to watch.
Awesome band. Great service.
We also went another night when a Guitar Duo was there - they were also fantastic and we even bought a CD.

Disappointed
This was recommended by our hosts. We had poor service, cold food. The staff wasoverwhelmed - understaffed possibly for the rush. My husband ordered tuna steak which was served on mash potato and it was cold. I ordered lobstr ravioli; the pasta was al dente, the lobstr rubbery ; and cold. The highlight. Location. Touristy prices.

wonderful beach views
They can really mix some great drinks. It was our favorite dinner in Sayulita. They had a couple that played Spanish guitar music and they were very good. Really set a romantic mood.
